Reports have Musselman losing another assistant coach

As the world turns in big-time college athletics, Arkansas has reportedly lost another assistant coach after reaching the Elite Eight this past season.

David Patrick, who came to the Razorbacks just 10 months ago, is going to Oklahoma on the staff of new coach Porter Moser, according to multiple media reports.

Corey Williams left last month for a position at Texas Tech and Eric Musselman hired another one of his former assistants, Gus Argenal, was announced Monday to be joining the staff.

Now there will be another new face.

This isn’t exactly new in the world of college basketball, which has a revolving door for assistant coaches almost every year.

Last year, Chris Crutchfield left Arkansas after just one season to become a head coach at East Central University, a Division II program in Oklahoma. He has since left that to go back to the big-time level, joining Dana Altman at Oregon last month.

This isn’t exactly new for Musselman. A story at HawgBeat this week by Andrew Hutchinson pointed out Musselman has never had an assistant coach stay longer than two seasons, which means Clay Moser may not be on the clock.

He’s the last man standing from Musselman’s original staff.

Relax. In case you’re wondering that’s nothing particularly unusual in the world of college basketball the last few years.

As noted earlier, it’s a revolving door.
